  • Facebook Fan Page Custom Element
  • Facebook Share Custom Element
  • Facebook Pages Custom Field Type

Pre-installation Considerations

This installation guide assumes that you have no Custom Elements/Metadata Forms with the names above. Before the install, remove any Custom Elements/Metadata Forms with the names listed in the "Contents" section above. (If you do not remove existing elements with these names, you may have difficulties during the installation.)

Facebook Considerations

Part of the Paperbook Application requires a Facebook API Key to enable your site to use a feature called Connect. Facebook Connect is the easiest and fastest way to add Facebook integration into any site.

If you do not have a Facebook API Key you will need to create a Facebook Application.


Each of the following steps should be completed fully and in the order presented:

  • Import the "Facebook Fan Page" Custom Element
  • Import the "Facebook Share" Custom Element
Note: The "Facebook Pages" Custom Field Type will be imported as a part of the
"Facebook Fan Page" Custom Element.
  • Add the following to your template-basepage.head
 <cfset application.paperbook.pbService.addFBNamespace(headStruct)>
  • Add the following to the bottom of your template-basepage.cfm
 <cfset application.paperbook.pbService.initFacebook()>
